Many fans noticed TNA Knockout Daffney’s profile was removed from the TNA roster page this week. Daffney has since released the following statement via her official Twitter account, “Yesterday my picture was taken down off of the TNA roster page. My contract expires today and TNA did not renew it. I do not know if it has anything to do with it, but I’ve filed a Workers Comp claim against them for injuries I’ve sustained in the ring and my lawyers said to not go into anymore details.”
I am no lawyer and perhaps Florida laws are different, but in the state I live in, independent contractors must carry Workers Compensation insurance on themselves or self insure. It’s a bit odd that her lawyers would not be aware of this. Again I’m not a lawyer so perhaps there is some quirk in Florida law. Perhaps it’s just posturing on her part hoping for a couple thousand in settlement money from TNA to avoid litigation.
